DRBD and MySQL - Virtualbox Setup

"Introduction

"DRBD is a Linux project to provide a real time distributed filesystem. Part two of this series will dig deep into a real-world installation example. We'll use Sun's virtualbox software to create a couple of VMs, then configure those VMs with DRBD, and finally install and test MySQL running on volumes sitting on DRBD.

"Virtualbox - An Easy and Powerful VM Solution

"Sun has a great free virtual machine solution called Virtualbox. There are many such options, but I chose theirs because it runs on Linux, Windows and Mac, so it should work for everyone.

"The download can be found here:

"It of course comes with a simple GUI installer, so I won't go through that in too much detail. That is pretty straightforward. Once you have that installed, fire it up and we'll run through the steps to create a vm. Since we will also be installing CentOS on our virtual machines, I recommend you go find that here:
